The Vampire Facelift is a non-surgical procedure that involves the re-injection of PRP (platelet rich plasma), which is derived from your own blood and Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers into areas of your face to rejuvenate your face and treat wrinkles.
PRP is a blood plasma that is enriched with platelets.
When it is activated using calcium chloride or thrmbin, it turns into a viscous gel which is otherwise called Platelet rich fibrin matrix. This contains elevated levels of cytokines, which are platelet-derived growth factors, which are re-introduced to the problem areas by injection.
The growth factors found in the PRP are responsible for improving your skin texture, volume and laxity.
The Hyaluronic acid filler is used to soften the appearance of wrinkles. Therefore, the whole procedure can help you look younger and the effects are reported to last for one year.
Smile lines, tear trough and marionette lines are said to benefit most from this innovative procedure. It is also effective in improving the lip border and cheek volume.
The best part is that it requires a minimal downtime.
A small amount of blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge to separate the PRP. A topical anesthetic will be used to desensitize the treatment area. While the growth platelets are being processed, HA filler is then injected into the problem areas that have folds or wrinkles. This is done to restore volume. Once that is done, the placement of platelets is commenced.
After the treatment, you will be told to avoid sun exposure, alcohol and exercise for a short period of time.
Please note that you will feel a mild amount of discomfort once the treatment is done. Minimal signs of redness, tenderness, lumps, and bruising may arise. These will last for only a few days.
If you are someone who wants to delay the aging process but is hesitant to try surgical procedures, this mildly-invasive technique may provide you with a safe and effective way to address your problem areas. The process makes use of your own blood to improve the texture and quality of your skin and the HA fillers restore the plumpness that you took for granted in your prime.
